4 Easy Steps To Healthy Living
You don’t have to change your entire life to incorporate a little healthy living into your daily routine. Slowly make a few small alterations to your everyday life and you’ll be amazed at how soon you look and feel healthier. Increase your energy. Save your money. Stop wasting your time. Start with these 4 easy steps.
1. Meal Prep For The Week
Start your week off on the right foot by prepping all of your meals for the week ahead of time. Stop worrying about not having enough time in the morning to make a healthy breakfast. Stop rushing around on your lunch hour to the nearest convenience store or fast food place trying to shove any food you can into your face before your break is over. Stop spending hours in the kitchen every night after a long day at work just to enjoy a home cooked meal.
Finally have time for yourself, without compromising your nutrition.
2. Replace Coffee or Soda With Water
We get it. Coffee and soda give you an energy boost that you need to get through the day. But now that you’re meal prepping and eating a healthy home cooked breakfast every morning you’ll be happy to find that you won’t need a mid morning boost of energy. And once you indulge in your healthy lunch, you’ll realize that you aren’t falling asleep at your desk mid afternoon due to a sugar crash, so you won’t need that caffeine pick me up.
Infuse your water with fruits as a great way to add some variety and flavor to your day . Try some of our favorite recipes if you’re having trouble coming up with your own tasty combos.
3. Set Aside 30 Minutes Everyday For Exercise
There are a lot of different kinds of exercises you can do, so it’s unfair to say that you hate exercise. You may hate running, or lifting weights, but maybe you’d like yoga. Maybe pilates and zumba sound like absolute torture to you, but you’d enjoy high intensity interval training if you gave it a try. The most important part of working out is actually performing the exercises, so find something you like and you’ll be more likely to stick with it.
Thirty minutes per day of any type of workout is sufficient and will provide you with results that you can see and feel. Just remember that no matter how hard you work, nothing produces overnight results.
4. Personalize Your Workspace (psychological health)
The average American adult spends between 35 and 45 hours per week at their job surrounded by work and company concerns. This can cause a psychological strain on a person, especially if their job happens to be taxing and stressful. You can improve your psychological health by adding a personal touch to your work space. Reducing your stress can be as easy as bringing in a single picture of a loved one, or a favorite trinket or two to liven up your work space.
Learn to recognize the way that your body and mind reacts to stress and tension and you’ll be better equipped to reduce the effects and improve the quality and efficiency of your work.
